Résumé: Widely linear (WL) receivers have the capability to perform single antenna interference cancellation (SAIC) of one rectilinear (R) or quasi-rectilinear (QR) co-channel interference (CCI), a function which is operational in global system for mobile communications (GSM) handsets in particular. Moreover, SAIC technology for QR signals is still required for voice services over adaptive multiuser channels on one slot (VAMOS) standard, a recent evolution of both GSM and enhanced data rates for GSM evolution (EDGE) standards, to mitigate legacy GSM CCI in particular. It is also required for filter bank multicarrier offset quadrature amplitude modulation (FBMC-OQAM) networks, which are candidate for 5G mobile networks, to mitigate intercarrier interference at reception for frequency selective propagation channels in particular. In this context, the purpose of this paper is twofold. The first one is to get more insights into the existing SAIC technology, and its extension to multiple antenna called multiple antenna interference cancellation (MAIC), by showing analytically that, contrary to what is accepted as true in the literature, SAIC/MAIC implemented from standard WL filtering may be less efficient for QR signals than for R ones. From this result, the second purpose of the paper is to propose and to analyze, forQRsignals and frequency selective fading channels, an SAIC/MAIC enhancement based on a three-input WL frequency shift receiver, making QR signals always almost equivalent to R ones for WL filtering in the presence of CCI. The results of the paper, completely new, may contribute to develop elsewhere new powerful WL receivers for QR signals and for both VAMOS and FBMC-OQAM networks in particular
